Who is "Evie?"
"Evie" is an evolution of our Greenhouse for Good research project that began in 2016. When we found her, she was an old Shasta, forgotten and in disrepair. Evie was reborn on March 31, 2017 as a completely retrofitted mobile greenhouse. Now, Evie joins the Hunt Institute and Lyle School of Engineering as the embodiment of our interdisciplinary approach to student-led research of innovative solutions that will impact for good.
The Hunt Institute is joining with Big Tex Urban Farms to exhibit Evie at Earth Day TX 2017.
We will have an interactive activity for children at our Earth Day booth on April 22, 2017 from 10 AM to noon and from 1 PM to 3 PM where children can plant their own take-home hanging plant.
